Today is the big moving day. It started a few hours ago and already a big box truck is full. They're putting furniture on a pickup truck now and will then drive 0.35 miles to unload it all. And come back for another load. It's exhausting, and we've been doing this (minus the heavy furniture) … Continue reading Big Day

After posting these pictures I looked back over them and decided anyone could be forgiven if he thought it looked like a spring slideshow. Truth be told, it has felt more like spring than … Continue reading Rolling along
[Photo completely at odds with my disjointed state of mind] Moving is a pain. I mean, it's good, it has some good aspects, but overall it's dreadful. I'm very overwhelmed right now. The big girls have gone back to school so I can't reply on them to help with little ones. It's house blessing season … Continue reading Overwhelmed
